Egghead Josh will be here demonstrating how to make you backyard cooking be the envy of the neighborhood.  "Feel the Backyard Burn", in a good way.  The menu is cooked on the BGE. 

Whether you are an egghead already or an aspiring one, you will enjoy learning about AND eating amazing recipes from the Big Green Egg.   

Save on the airfare and take a trip to Central Texas with Egghead Josh without leaving Brandon!  While many regions throughout the US claim to have the best BBQ, the 'cue they are making in the heart of Texas is hands down some of the best food you will ever have--BBQ or otherwise!

Pulling inspiration from his BBQ pilgrimage to Texas, Josh Tahan will be teaching all attendees the way of classic Texas low-and-slow BBQ.

This Texas-sized menu boasts some of the biggest and boldest flavors ever to be put on a single menu before. You may look at the food lineup and say the star of the night is the brisket and burnt ends--but the showstopper will be the smoked potato salad and the ham-hock infused slow-cooked collard greens.

Get your cowboy hats on and breakout the boots, we're going to Texas y'all!

Presents


LET'S GO CRABBIN'

Tonight experience a Tampa blue crab tradition!

Crab is a special treat, not because of the cost but more so because of the effort involved in picking the meat out and the amount of effort required for cooking and preparing the little critters. It can be quite the task to take on, but it is equally rewarding. When eating the crab meat, make sure not to overdo the spices that you use for seasoning as this can easily overwhelm the subtler taste of the crab.

Venture back to when Cuban families from Tampa would go crabbing along the shores of Florida and then have the traditional Tampa treat "jaibas enchiladas."

Catch, cook, and enjoy!


Tonight's Menu: 

Traditional Wedge Salad with Blue Cheese and Benton's Bacon


Camarones Al Ajillio
(Shrimp in Garlic Sauce over Grit Cake)


Jaibas Enchiladas 
(Blue Crab Enchiladas)


Fresh Garlic Toasted Cuban Bread

DESTINATION DELICIOUS
AMERICAN DINER FOODS #1
 

DESTINATION DELICIOUS

AMERICAN DINER FOODS #1

Introducing a NEW recurring series of events in the RP Culinary Center on the last Friday of each month. 

At these events we will create a gourmet meal from a DELICIOUS DESTINATION around the country and world.  Our focus will be on the region through the food they eat and enjoy. 

Tonight, our destination is American diners.  They are a small quick food casual restaurant that is found in the Northeastern United States and Midwest, as well as in other parts of the US and Canada. Diners offer a wide range of foods, mostly American cuisine, and have a distinct exterior structure, a casual atmosphere, a long counter with bar stools where patrons eat their meals, and late operating hours. Diners frequently stay open 24 hours a day, especially in cities and towns with a busy bar scene or with factories with night shift workers.


Diners typically serve American food such as hamburgers, french fries, club sandwiches, and other simple, quickly cooked, and inexpensive fare. Much of the food is grilled, as early diners were based around a grill. Coffee is the ubiquitous beverage at diners, even if it is not always of high quality. Diners often serve hand-blended milkshakes and desserts such as pies, which are typically displayed in a glass case. Classic American diners often have an exterior layer of stainless steel siding—a feature unique to diner architecture.

Tonight's DELICIOUS DESTINATION Menu:

Red Chicken and Waffles with Maple Butter and Syrup

Seared Diner Meatloaf

Buttery Whipped Smooth Potatoes

Bacon Braised Green Beans

bouillabaisse

CHEF VIRGINIA WILLIS
Presents

SOUTHERN SUPPER

Classic time-tested recipes of the south that Virginia will "Chef Up".  The menu will be familiar, but not exactly your MaMaw's fixin's. 

Join us for a wonderful evening of learning, eating, and conversation with one of Rolling Pin's most beloved guest chefs...Virginia Willis!  





As the daughter and granddaughter of consummate Southern cooks and a classically trained French chef, Virginia has a gift for giving French recipes a down-home Southern feel. Her acclaimed first book,  Bon Appetite, Y’all , is a passionate homage to her culinary roots. In her demonstration of the recipes from her new book,  Lighten Up, Y’all , Virginia will show you how to take a tasty basic recipe and transform it, via a technique, garnish, additional step, or short recipe, into a show stopper - without the guilt!

Georgia-born French-trained Chef Virginia Willis has cooked Lapin Normandie with Julia Child in France, prepared lunch for President Clinton, catered a bowling party for Jane Fonda, and harvested capers in the shadow of a smoldering volcano in Sicily -- but it all started in her grandmother’s country kitchen. 

The Chicago Tribune praised her as one of "Seven Food Writers You Need to Know." She is the author of a number of cookbooks in addition to those mentioned previously. Her legion of fans love her knack for giving classic French cooking a down-home feel and reimagining Southern recipes en Français. She writes the popular comfort food blog called Down-Home Comfort that celebrates comfort food cooking for Food Network and the Cooking Channel. Her eponymous food blog receives rave reviews for her recipes and stories celebrating her unique culinary niche.

She is a contributing editor for Southern Living and her articles have appeared nationally including Food52 and CNN.com as well as Country Living, Fine Cooking, All-Recipes, and Eating Well. As a nationally recognized Southern food and beverage expert she has been featured in the Washington Post and USA Today as well as quoted in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

She is the former TV kitchen director for Martha Stewart Living, Bobby Flay, and Nathalie Dupree. Virginia has appeared on Food Network's Chopped, Fox Family and Friends, Martha Stewart Living, Paula Deen's Best Dishes, and as a judge on Throwdown with Bobby Flay.



She is a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, Les Dames d'Escoffier, Georgia Organics, and the Southern Foodways Alliance. Virginia is on the advisory boards for the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Blue Ribbon Task Force. She participates in Chef's Move to Schools and is also part of the No Kid Hungry Blogger Program for Share our Strength.

CHEF VIRGINIA WILLIS
Presents

TIME FOR BRUNCH, Y'ALL!

We love Brunch!  A meal between breakfast and lunch.  One that celebrates the best of both dayparts and has some of it's own.   

Join us for a wonderful evening of learning, eating, and conversation with one of Rolling Pin's most beloved guest chefs...Virginia Willis!  





As the daughter and granddaughter of consummate Southern cooks and a classically trained French chef, Virginia has a gift for giving French recipes a down-home Southern feel. Her acclaimed first book,  Bon Appetite, Y’all , is a passionate homage to her culinary roots. In her demonstration of the recipes from her new book,  Lighten Up, Y’all , Virginia will show you how to take a tasty basic recipe and transform it, via a technique, garnish, additional step, or short recipe, into a show stopper - without the guilt!

Georgia-born French-trained Chef Virginia Willis has cooked Lapin Normandie with Julia Child in France, prepared lunch for President Clinton, catered a bowling party for Jane Fonda, and harvested capers in the shadow of a smoldering volcano in Sicily -- but it all started in her grandmother’s country kitchen. 

The Chicago Tribune praised her as one of "Seven Food Writers You Need to Know." She is the author of a number of cookbooks in addition to those mentioned previously. Her legion of fans love her knack for giving classic French cooking a down-home feel and reimagining Southern recipes en Français. She writes the popular comfort food blog called Down-Home Comfort that celebrates comfort food cooking for Food Network and the Cooking Channel. Her eponymous food blog receives rave reviews for her recipes and stories celebrating her unique culinary niche.

She is a contributing editor for Southern Living and her articles have appeared nationally including Food52 and CNN.com as well as Country Living, Fine Cooking, All-Recipes, and Eating Well. As a nationally recognized Southern food and beverage expert she has been featured in the Washington Post and USA Today as well as quoted in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

She is the former TV kitchen director for Martha Stewart Living, Bobby Flay, and Nathalie Dupree. Virginia has appeared on Food Network's Chopped, Fox Family and Friends, Martha Stewart Living, Paula Deen's Best Dishes, and as a judge on Throwdown with Bobby Flay.



She is a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, Les Dames d'Escoffier, Georgia Organics, and the Southern Foodways Alliance. Virginia is on the advisory boards for the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Blue Ribbon Task Force. She participates in Chef's Move to Schools and is also part of the No Kid Hungry Blogger Program for Share our Strength.
